Pollution Row Gautam Gambhir's Air Quality Index 'Scoreboard' Takes A Dig At Political Leadership

The Air Quality in Delhi is "very poor" since November 23 and there is high content of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) across residential areas heightening the toxicity of the haze.

The spurt in pollutants was caused by a combination of meteorological factors including a drop in temperature, wind speed and mixing height, a layer where air and particulates float, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) said. Some of the Sri Lankan players had simultaneously fallen sick.

The level of major pollutant PM2.5, or particles with diameter less than 2.5 micrometers, at 9 p.m. was 88 across Delhi, while in Delhi NCR it was 87 against 254 and 261 on Tuesday.

Pollution is considered severe plus or emergency when readings of PM2.5 and PM10 cross 300 and 500 ug/m3 respectively.

The safe limit for PM2.5 according to worldwide standards is 25 microgrammes per cubic meters and 60 units as per national standards.

Humidity has risen from 44.3 per cent to 51 per cent while average temperature has dipped by about two degrees since November 27.

Delhis air quality today improved further with the AQI shifting to moderate zone as breeze cleared up the hazy sky bringing relief to people in the national capital.

On November 14, Lucknow had earned the dubious distinction of being the most polluted city in the country with AQI of 484. Four UP cities figured in the "very poor" air quality category of CPCB on Wednesday. However, it is menacingly close to the "severe" category.

On Thursday, Delhi and the region around it saw a "moderate" air quality with the Air Quality Index (AQI) at 194 in Delhi at 4 p.m. Delhi was suffering with "severe" air quality in the last few days.
